WISH is a community where women embrace each other's nerdiness and excitement about science. Stay up late watching your favorite movies and studying with friends in the exclusive WISH lounge, share your passion for science while volunteering at a Girl Scout event, or challenge yourself by making new connections with female mentors in your field! WISH residents are serious students, but with events like floor decorating contests and semi-formal dances they sure know how to have fun.
The WIS House includes 15 rooms for up to 30 women in the Campus Apartments on the Riverwalk. Each room includes two private bedrooms and two private bathrooms. View the Two Bedroom Panoramic Tour and Floor Plan
